“Saw It All but Never Felt Rushed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

We were met by our driver/guide on time at the appointed place. Kostas was very courteous, had clean equipment, and had an excellent knowledge of the city. He was well organized so that we arrived at various sites (changing of the guard, etc.) at just the right time to see the attraction but avoid the crowd which would gather. If we get back to Athens, we will surely contact George's Taxi and request Kostas as our guide.

“Good way to overview Athens in a day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

George met us at the cruise dock and was a wealth of information never having been to Athens before he surely gave us a great day. The depth of his knowledge was great. You always felt safe and in good hands. The lunch with the locals was an extra. I always use private tour guides when we cruise because you get so much better information and you can do so much more that makes the day very special. Always answered my emails and questions. A very pleasant day experience.

“Absolute brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

This is, without a doubt, the way to see Athens in comfort and with flexibility and comfort.

We were picked up off the cruise ship, and spent 5 hours being taken where we fancied among the sights recommended by Dennis, our driver.

He was a fountain of knowledge re Athens, and we all felt it extremely good value for money.

Very highly recommended.

“Excellent service, the best way to sightsee and go around in Greece”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Unless you have your own car (and even if you have your own car), this is probably the best way to go around in Greece for a day tour or a multi-day tour. We spent a few days sightseeing with Spiros, our philosopher guide, who showed us around, and my teenage sons -- who have an interest in Greek mythology -- found the conversations with him stimulating and entertaining.

He drove us more than a 1000km, always driving at safe speeds, even to the point of irritating us, but he would point to the roadside memorials of people killed in accidents and just keep at his own pace. He arranged some of the best hotels for us and showed us good places to eat. On the last day, when he dropped us at the Piraeus port for our sailing trip, it was an emotional good bye. We will look for him whenever we go to Greece again.

“Excellent Time in Athens!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Thanks for the wonderful time in Athens. Kostos picked us up at the airport on time, he was very informative and knowledgeable about the area etc. He maneuvered through traffic and got us safely to our hotel. The next day he picked us up and took us to the historical sites we wanted to visit along the way telling us about Greek history and traditions. He even brought us to his family restaurant that he goes to eat every day , we were treated like royalty!
The service was a bit more then a regular taxi service however it was well worth the comfort, security and the knowledgeable staff! The taxis are also very clean and air conditioned.
